Mr STACEY (ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Seeing that applegrowers are receiving only 2s. or 3s. a case for their fruit, whilst the consumers are paying 15s. a case, does the Minister for Commerce consider that the time has arrived for the Apple and Pear Marketing Board to be scrapped, as the cost of distribution is 500 per cent greater than the return to the growers?

Mr SCULLY - I shall refer the matter to the Minister assisting the Minister for Commerce, who administers the Apple and Pear Acquisition scheme.
